It's 4 feet by 4 feet. I used to plant tomatoes, cucumbers, snap peas and others. I got the idea for a small vegetable garden from a book, Square Foot Gardening. I did it to cut back from a larger garden I had in past years.
Last year with my health problems I let Lynette plant sunflowers because they were easy and I did not have to get involved.
This year I want to make it an herb garden, maybe in pots or containers. That way I can move some of them indoors when it gets cold.
This is how it looks today, after I cleared out the weeds. It took about an hour. The weather was perfect, not too hot or cold or windy.
Last Fall I threw our Halloween pumpkin into the garden. I was going to put it with the trash but never got to it. I forgot.
This is all that's left of the pumpkin, only the seeds.

These seeds have already begun to sprout. I did not have the heart to kill them so I buried them.
Maybe this year we'll have a pumpkin patch with a few herb plants squeezed in!
